Ward Churchill Officially Let Go From U of Colorado

Citing the “content and rhetoric” of his views on 9/11, allegations of research misconduct, and questions surrounding misrepresentation of his ethnicity in order to gain a hiring advantage, Interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano has announced his intention to dismiss Ward Churchill from his position at U of C.

“After conducting the due diligence I felt was necessary, I have come to a decision regarding the recommendations of the Standing Committee on Research Misconduct pertaining to Professor Ward Churchill. Today, I issued to Professor Churchill a notice of intent to dismiss him from his faculty position at the University of Colorado, Boulder.”
